And the answer is. . .

I'm apparently pregnant. At least for now. Beta was 89. (Is that good? The nurse said that was good. I have no idea. I'm on CD28, and about 11-12DPO.). 2nd beta on Thursday. She also said that My progesterone levels look really good (50, she said, although that means nothing to me, either), and although they thought that I might need progesterone supp's, they don't see a need.

Hmmm. It doesn't feel real.

That's great news!

Here's hoping that this little bean sticks. I'll be keeping you in my thoughts.

First of all, CONGRATULATIONS!! I've been lurking for a while, but I don't think I've ever commented. Second, the first beta is somewhat meaningless and how quickly it doubles is the important thing. Are you getting a second beta? (For whatever it's worth, my beta at 14DPO was 48 on my IVF cycle, and my daughter conceived on that cycle is taking a nap in the next room. So yes, 89 isn't bad.) Third, I don't remember exactly what the thought is on progesterone, but I seem to recall that they like to see it in the teens or higher - so you are doing great!

Congrats again and best wishes for a happy and healthy 9 months!!!

Wonderful news!!! I think that sounds like a great beta; with this pregnancy, mine was 48 at the IVF equivalent of 13dpo, and 157 at the 15dpo mark...Best of luck on Thursday and beyond!

Woo-hoo!! Your numbers sound great, your progesterone is higher than mine was ~with~ supplementation.

It is hard not to get wrapped up in the numbers. I googled the SH!T out of my betas and it really got me no where. But we do like to obsess, don't we?!?!

Dig in, little one!!

89 is a rock awesome first beta. Congratulations! Also, from what I remember, 50 is a pretty damn good progesterone level, too.

Just in time for Mother's Day.

50 for progesterone is HIGH!!!

And your beta sounds good to me. The real concern is doubling time as far as I understand.

Congratulations! And good luck telling Hubby! I couldn't wait. I told mine immediately.
